This is a very favourable review overall. The noise issue, very prominent in other reviews, is put into perspective. ie in normal driving it really isn't a factor.
RPM at 100km being under 2000, is amazing for this sector. The test fuel economy numbers are also impressive.
BTW, I think the Versa really straddles two sectors. It is basically as big as a Civic or Corolla and content to content is actually cheaper than virtually any sub-compact.
So while definitely not a purist machine from any point of view, the Versa is an outstanding proposition on the basis of content and size. Although rough around the edges, there don't appear to be any fatal flaws for an average driver who wants a medium sized car and a lot of toys.
If you know people who are downsizing or small families needing cheap and (probably) reliable transport, then this would be a car to recommend for a look-see.
